Suhas is a passionate sarod player with wonderful aesthetic sensibility. He is an avid student of Indian Classical Music and this beautiful string instrument. His past gurus include the late Shri Kaustav Roy, a senior disciple of Pandit Buddhadev Dasgupta - and then the late Shri Bidyut Khan who was the elder son of Ustad Bahadur Khan. Hence, his music is influenced by both the Maihar and the Senia-Shahjehanpur gharanas. Currently under the experienced guidance of Pandit Sanjoy Bandopadhyay, Suhas is blossoming into a highly accomplished sarod player.
